Bpeace Blog Briefs

Stories of bravery, transformation and impact.

Bpeace HQ


The Bpeace Board of Directors elected Kate Buggeln as the new Chairperson of the nine-member Board.  Kate succeeds Laurie Chock, who continues as a long-time Board member.

"Kate is highly strategic, fearless and totally committed to the Bpeace vision because she has been one of its architects," said Toni Maloney, Bpeace's CEO.   "We are lucky to have such a smooth transition from Laurie's Board leadership to Kate."

In non-Bpeace life, Kate is a business growth strategist with a strong retail background and she sits on several corporate boards including Ascena Retail Group, Noble Biomaterials, and Vitamin Shoppe.

In her Bpeace life, Kate's impact has been wide and deep.  She has raised more money than anyone--$360,000 over the past 8 years.  By a significant margin, Kate logged the most Bpeace expedition miles--13 trips in all, including 4 trips to Afghanistan, 5 to Rwanda and 4 to El Salvador.  Just this March, she traveled to San Salvador as a traveling mentor for Marenco, our Fast Runner who produces children's clothing.
